Mommy Makeover

After pregnancy and nursing, many women notice that their body has undergone a significant transformation. Physical changes to the breasts, stomach, buttocks, face, and other areas may linger despite a healthy diet and regular exercise due to stretched or separated musculature, loose skin, and stubborn fat pockets. To help repair these concerns and restore a pre-pregnancy figure, our board-certified female plastic surgeon in Corpus Christi, Dr. Cassidy Hinojosa, can combine both surgical and non-surgical treatments for a personalized mommy makeover treatment plan.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover is designed to address cosmetic concerns after pregnancy and breastfeeding by combining two or more aesthetic procedures into a comprehensive treatment plan. Each mommy makeover is customized to fit the unique contouring and enhancement goals of the patient, ranging from breast surgery and tummy tuck surgery to more subtle body contouring and non-surgical rejuvenation options. While some treatments may be safe to perform together in a single day, other procedures may need to be segmented into multiple appointments to achieve the most successful outcome.

What Does a Mommy Makeover Include?

There are many procedures to choose from when developing a custom-tailored mommy makeover treatment plan. In general, mommy makeover patients are commonly interested in:

What is involved in the Mommy Makeover Procedure?

As a mother herself, Dr. Hinojosa’s goal is to collaborate with each mommy makeover patient to create an aesthetic outcome that helps them look and feel their best. During an initial consultation, she will examine the physical concerns, listen to the desired goals, and determine a treatment plan to help each patient restore their self-confidence and physique.

Dr. Hinojosa takes a custom approach to each mommy makeover, ensuring the surgical techniques and methods are catered precisely to each patient’s goals. In general, one of the most popular combinations for a mommy makeover involves a tummy tuck to restore the abdomen and some form of breast surgery—such as an augmentation, lift, or reduction. Liposuction may also be included to help enhance body contours and target unwanted fat.

Overall, most surgical procedures are performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. The entire mommy makeover treatment plan may or may not be able to be completed in one surgical session depending on which procedures are involved. Dr. Hinojosa can provide a more detailed timeline once a personalized cosmetic treatment plan has been established.

How Long is Recovery After a Mommy Makeover?

Recovery time after a mommy makeover varies for each patient, depending on the procedures performed and how the body responds to the healing process. In general, patients should expect some degree of swelling, bruising, discomfort, or tenderness following surgery. More comprehensive surgeries, such as breast reductions, thigh lifts, and tummy tucks, usually have a longer recovery period versus less invasive procedures (such as liposuction) or non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments. It is important to closely follow all post-surgery instructions to ensure a safe and successful recovery and optimal results.

How Much Does a Mommy Makeover Cost?

The total cost of a mommy makeover can vary significantly depending on which procedures are involved. For instance, at the Coastal Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Center, a tummy tuck typically ranges between $6500-9500, breast augmentation costs around $7000, and a breast lift generally starts around $6500, depending on the unique needs and goals of the patient.

During your consultation, Dr. Hinojosa and the team at Coastal Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery Center will thoroughly review your cosmetic goals and develop a custom treatment plan for you.
